christmas parties

Lighthouse Christian Camp ministers to disadvantaged children in Middle Tennessee. With the help of many volunteers, we bring children to camp during the summer and back again on weekends throughout the year. Over the past 36+ years, over 18,500 children have attended a FREE week of camp! These precious children are then invited back to a BIG CHRISTMAS PARTY, just for them! We expect 800 children!

camp store

Your Christmas will never be the same!

 A "CAMP STORE" is set up with donated items from individuals, like yourself. These items are placed on tables and valued from $1-$10.00. Each child is given $35 "play money" to shop for themselves and their family members. A suggested list is provided below for the type of things needed to supply the camp store. 


Please bring your boxes of UNWRAPPED items to your church, to your designated person or location or to the camp by November 15. You may also make a monetary donation to the camp to be used for the Christmas Parties. Be a vital part of a child’s life during the Christmas Season by giving to these disadvantaged children. This will be the only Christmas many of these children will know.
